There are lots of changes going on with ‘American Idol’ for the new season. Kara DioGuardi’s addition is only the first of many we will see in Season 8. With a 6 percent dip in viewership for Season 7, cutting back on the filmed auditions from 4 weeks to 3, they are hoping will help keep the viewers coming back. One week less of the off-key singers and more of the talented ones. Also, they are sending 36 instead of 24 to the shows Hollywood Week final cut to 12 idols. That will be a huge maneuver to up the stakes.
As far as last night goes, same old stuff. Let’s get to the talent folks. Only two more weeks of the ‘funny?’ singers.
